JUST TO BRING YOU GUYS UP TO DATE WITH THE MR2 SERIES 2004
YES IT IS HAPPENING WE HAVE TWO CARS BUILT AND TESTING
AS WE SPEAK AND ANOTHER SIX ABOUT TO START PREPERATION SO I HOPE ALL THOSE WHO HAVE EXPRESSED INITIAL INTEREST WRITE OUT SOME CHEQUES OR IM GOING TO BE SERIOUSLY OUT OF POCKET.

TWO DRIVERS TESTED FOR NEXT YEARS HIRE DRIVES AT SNETTERTON ONLY LAST TUESDAY WE WILL HAVE THEM OUT IN A RACE TO TEST THE WATER AT MALLORY 19TH OCTOBER SO YOU CAN SEE THEY ARE NOT MY IMAGINATION WITH A SERIES PLANED FOR NEXT YEAR WITH EXPANSION TO MR2 MK2'S AND MX 5'S ETC ETC PLANED LATER IF ITS SUCESFULL.

OUR WEB SITE WILL BE LAUNCHED OCT 1ST WITH ALL THE INFO RED DRAGON AUTOMOTIVE.COM ALONG WITH DETAILS OF OUR NEW SLICKS AND WINGS CAR SERIES WHICH ALSO DOES EXIST IN THE FLESH IS TESTING AND WILL BE HAPPENING NEXT YEAR BUT WONT BE OFICIALLY LAUNCHED TILL THE SPONSORSHIPS SORTED THAT CAR MAY ALSO BE AT MALLORY .

REGARDING SPEC OF CARS
THE WHOLE POINT OF THE SERIES IS FOR IT TO BE A BUDGET SERIES
SO IT WILL BE AS NEAR STANDARD ROAD SPEC AS WE CAN MAKE IT [ALTHOUGH LONG TERM WE HAVE PLANES FOR A LARGER CHAMPIONSHIP FOR ALL JAPANESE MARQUES ALLOWING ANY STATE OF TUNE] WHILST SAYING THAT I DONT THINK MOTORSPORT CAN BE THOUGHT OF AS CHEEP IF YOUR SRYGGLING TO PAY THE MORTGAUG JUST A BIT CHEEPER THAN OTHER FORMS
TYRE AND ENGINE WISE THE CONSIDEARTIONS ARE TO ENSURE NO ONE IS FIDDLING WITH TRICK ENGINES OR TYRES THSES COMPONENTS WILL BE AVAILABLE BECAUSE OF THE DISCOUNTS WE ARENEGOTIATING CHEEPER THAN RETAIL SO IT WONT COST YOU MORE THAN YOU WOULD PAY IN THE OPEN MARKET AS IT WERE AND WE CAN ENSURE NO ONE CHEETS OR BUYS THERE WAY TO THE TOP.
THE SERIES WILL START AS A CLASS WITHIN ROAD SPORTS AND WHEN THE NUMBERS JUSTIFY IT HAVE A CHAMPIONSHIP OF ITS OWN. BUT THAT IS UP TO YOU GUYS IF ITS NOT THE RIGHT IDEA THEN I HAVE FAILED
STEPHENZEBRA@AOL.COM
PS YES T BARS CAN RACE ONE OF OUR CARS IS AND HAS BEEN SRUTINEERD AS OK. if you want a plate to replace a glass roof we can do that for you because we have had to deal with that problem with our second car

Cool steve, that sounds very interesting! Engine/gearbox wise whats the idea? will you be supplying spec units or kits? Most people (like me ) with an old MR2 hanging about probably needs their engines overhauled as most will have done well over a 100,000 miles.The plate idea for the sunroof is great news, whats the thinking going to be around shocks??

I'm looking forward to seeing the details!

MR2 is to replace my second car - the Rover 200.. So I'll end up having two very pratical cars! And both ready for the track (when I fix the MG that is).

Off to check out autotrader.

A colleague of mine went to test drive one of the cars at Snetterton, he much enjoyed it I think. I was supposed to go too, but couldn't get the time off work.

I'll see if I can make him join in on this thread...Then he can tell you why he needs to buy/hire another MR2

Well I have to say before I actually got with my present missus and had'nt driven one I thought they were hairdresser motors, but around the lanes of Dorset the things fantastic - perhaps more fun than my 325 BMW. The handling is superb, and I can just imagine how nice it will be thru Gerards or the Craners.... Defo get your mate on here Richy, I want to hear more.

Yes, that was me. Had a go in two cars at Snetterton, loved it and am planning to do 4/5 races next year. Got my MSA go racing pack and should be doing the ARDS course in the near future.

Cool grahame, have you got a car or will you hire? best of luck, plenty of people on here can help you with any questions you might have about starting - do a search on ARDS should bring up some pertinant threads.

I do own what was a rather nice T-Bar until a mishap at a Cadwell Park track day in May (see http://www.pistonheads.com/sales/det...&sc=Q0H7&s=155) and was considering buying another one, but after serious consideration have decided to hire as it suits my circumstances a bit better.

My bloke was looking at them around the time we got together, but I had a kart I let him race so he had to get a van!
